If they quietly support causes you abhor, it's OK to patronize the company?
If only discrimination against MLP fandom were, I don't know, somehow illegal

DigDoug: Just because he's not personally taking your money doesn't mean he won't get a few pennies from each transaction.
And I'm okay with him being a bronze-age troglodyte of a human being. As long as he's not stopping the CEO of every tech company pushing for marriage equality. He can think differently.

"We are very pleased with this outcome and thank Alderman Moreno for his work on this issue,” Anthony Martinez, executive director of TCRA, said in the statement. “I think the most substantive part of this outcome is that Chick-fil-A has ceased donating to organizations that promote discrimination, specifically against LGBT civil rights. It has taken months of discussion, both with our organization and with the Alderman, for Chick-fil-A to come forward with these concessions and we feel this is a strong step forward for Chick-fil-A and the LGBT community, although it is only a step.” [emphasis mine]
In a letter addressed to Alderman Moreno and signed by Chick-fil-A’s Senior Director of Real Estate, it states, “The WinShape Foundations is now taking a much closer look at the organizations it considers helping, and in that process will remain true to its stated philosophy of not supporting organizations with political agendas.” Winshape, a non-profit funded by Chick-fil-a, has donated millions of dollars to anti-LGBT groups, including some classified as hate groups. In meetings the company executives clarified that they will no longer give to anti-gay organizations. [emphasis mine]
